· · Cool Stuff Found

Calling all avant-garde punks: Apple Music will debut Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band on May 22nd, 2018. A concert film celebrating the 40th anniversary of Horses, this film was produced by Apple’s own Jimmy Iovine. With on-stage and back-stage footage, the show features Patti Smith and her band, Lenny Kaye, Jay Dee Daugherty, Tony Shanahan, and Jack Petruzzelli, who are joined with her guitarist Jackson Smith and Flea. Patti Smith was one of the big names in New York City’s punk scene in the 1970s, occupying what was often seen as the avant-garde edge of that scene. Put another way, Patti Smith is one of those iconic artists well known among musicians. Check out the trailer below for a taste of what this show will be like. If you want to listen to Horses, it’s on iTunes and Apple Music.
